Paradise may just be a concept of myth and lore, but travelers stubbornly seek it out anyhow. Arriving on the northern tip of Praslin in the Seychelles, lucky leisure lovers may find themselves thinking, "Jackpot."
Raffles Praslin, Seychelles hides calmly and quietly on a green hill facing the teal waters of the Indian Ocean. The resort features 86 villas including one and two-bedroom villa suites, each with private plunge pool, and outdoor pavilion. These private domiciles sit in Elysium-like surroundings, and are amongst the largest in the region. Enjoy a bath with a water view, an outdoor shower, or a lazy morning in your cozy bed with Nespresso you just brewed.
Losean Restaurant is offering buffet style themed evenings and contemporary Mediterranean cuisine with influence from the Indian Ocean while Curieuse Seafood Restaurant showcase seafood specialties, including locally caught fish and lobster.
Unwind at Danzil Lounge Bar with regular entertainment with live band or DJ or at the rooftop lounge Takamaka Terrace offering a wide array of beverages and shishas with a backdrop of dramatic vistas. You can also dine in the privacy of your villa or choose to eat at your favourite outdoor location: private dinner on the beach, in a cabana, on board a yacht, island BBQ…
Stay in and tone up at the gym and spa, or venture out into the Vallée de Mai in search of the provocative coco de mer. Beaches include the Anse Takamaka, and the nearby Anse Lazio, hailed as one of the most flawless beaches on earth. 10-minutes on a boat with snorkel in-hand yields encounters with Giant Tortoises at Curieuse, an apt name indeed.
